Official Nintendo Duck Hunt T-shirt

Black T-shirt with NES Duck Hunt Box Art

This official Nintendo Duck Hunt Box Art T-shirt is ideal for showing your love for the classic 80s video game, and comes in a choice of black, charcoal and charcoal heather colours. It features the art that was on the original cartridge and also the box that it came in.

As I write, the black tee comes in a full range of sizes for adults from small to 5XL. However, the charcoal heather tee is limited to sizes S to XXL, and the charcoal tee is only available in 4XL for some reason. These size choices could change at any time, of course, so click through to Amazon using the link above and check out the latest sizes. The T-shirt is being sold through the official Nintendo storefront on Amazon.co.uk. 

Now just to confuse you, Nintendo are also selling this black Duck Hunt T-shirt in a separate listing for a lower price, although it is limited to sizes S, M, L and XL.

Anyone who owned a NES console during the 80s will probably have played the classic shooter game Duck Hunt at some point. It was one of the best known games that required the use of the light gun (known as the Zapper). 

Despite rather mixed reviews and that annoying hunting dog who sniggers at you, the game has since gained a cult following, and there are still a great many fans who have fond memories of playing the game back in the 1980s. 

Being able to shooting at your TV screen (without destroying it!) was a real novelty back then, and it still remains the only video game I played at home which actually used a gun. I believe there may have been close to 20 NES games which used the gun (some unlicensed), but I never bought any of those. 

As simple as the game was, I much prefer the old school 8-bit games to today's massively overblown 3D games which, although look almost photorealistic, all seem to feature very long and boring storylines and very similar gameplay which all seem to feature crafting (yawn!) - give me some something which is instantly fun and playable, please!

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

Embed from Getty Images Debbie Harry Fridge Magnet Back in my school days (yes, it was a long, long time ago!) many kids associated Blondie purely with lead singer Debbie Harry, although Blondie was actually a band, and a damn fine one, too. It's not hard to see why. After all, she oozed sex appeal and became a style icon, and many of her looks can still be seen on the high street today. Harry's designer friend Stephen Sprouse can claim responsibility for many of those looks. He created every style you can imagine using denim, black leather biker jackets, camoflauge, wayfarer and aviator shades, pink and girly styles, nautical stripes, animal print catsuits - the list goes on! I find it amusing that in 1998 Britney Spears caused controversy by wearing a school uniform for her video "Hit Me Baby One More Time". How quickly we forget that Debbie Harry had done this two decades earlier! After forming in 1974, Blondie became pioneers of the punk and new wave s

Create an 80s Aerobics Fashion Look

Let's Get Physical 80s Workout Costume During the early 1980s, it felt like the whole world had gone aerobics crazy. Females everywhere donned leotards, leggings, headbands and legwarmers, and some were even on rollerskates! Pop stars and actresses were responsible for starting the craze. Olivia Newton-John started a headband fad after the release of here raunchy Physical video in 1981, and the song quickly became an aerobics anthem. And just about every home had a Jane Fonda workout video in their collection - often proudly on display on a book shelf in the living room, or carefully placed on a coffee table for all to see. However, contrary to popular belief, not everyone was wearing neon. Take a look back at the old workout videos and you'll see a whole range of colours and styles being worn. Some leotards were shiny, some had stripes and others were pastel. Zebra stripes, leopard print, and splatter paint designs were also worn by some. There were often (but not always)

Create Your Own E.T. The Extra Terrestrial Costume

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial was the highest-grossing movie of the 80s, and many regard it as one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time. The Spielberg classic tells the story of a lonely boy named Elliot who becomes friend with a stranded extra terrestrial who needs to get back home - we all remember that classic "E.T. phone home" moment, don't we? If you're looking for a unique costume idea for a 1980s, sci-fi or film and TV party or event, or maybe Halloween, then an E.T. costume should fit the bill for both men or women. Adult Elliot Costume (US) Adult ET Costume (UK ) Now, you can buy a ready-made ET outfit from Amazon UK or Amazon.com. However, although it's convenient, it's also pretty expensive, and you can very easily create your own costume for a fraction of the cost. You'll notice that ET is wearing a red hoodie and blue jeans in the picture above for the UK costume. However, in the film, it is Elliot who wears this, and
